    I really love how you did the headboards on the kids’ beds in paint! That’s such a creative idea. I had to hire an architect when I designed my home because it’s hard for me to stay focused on one room. I like having someone there to bounce ideas off of and keep things on track. I’m glad that you could do this all on your own. That’s impressive!
